A strong interest among the Flagstaff community emerged in the 1970s to document and preserve historical structures around the town. The Flagstaff Historic Sites Commission, the Arizona Historical Society-Northern Division/Northern Arizona Pioneers Historical Society along with other notable institutions in cooperation with the City of Flagstaff worked toward determining which properties in a given survey area would qualify for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. Arizona State Historic Property Inventory Forms were used to document these selections comprising over 1,000 buildings many of which retained their original architectural integrity with minor or no alterations.
The Flagstaff City Directories cover Flagstaff from the years of 1929 to 1986 (some years are missing). They present a slice of life at that time, including a brief history of Flagstaff and demographics, local attractions, clubs and organizations. They correlate with a Street and Avenue Guide covering what business or residence is located at each address. In addition to providing phone number and street addresses for residents, these unique directories can also provide marital, career, and educational status.
